The names “Toolshop®,” “Universal Blueprint®” and “Parents Tool Talk,” are legally registered trademarks in active use. Our website or blog may contain these and other of our service marks or trademarks, as well as those of our affiliates or other companies, in the form of words, graphics, and logos. Your use of our website, blog, resources, programs or services does not constitute any right or license for you to use our service marks or trademarks, without the prior written permission of RTITI.
Proprietary Content & Systems
The Universal Blueprint® system is considered proprietary, because no other parenting or relationship improvement program (to our knowledge) has such a system that can be used for decision-making and problem-solving that results in totally customized responses and solutions that are personalized to the situation and people in it at that moment. It would have been patented if were a mechanical or chemical process. Since it’s not, it is protected under U.S. Copyrights IN WHOLE AND PART.
When you access a product, resource, service or program that teaches the Universal Blueprint® system, you are agreeing to honor the decades of research, development, testing, and updates that have gone into its creation and evolution by not sharing the system or any part of it with anyone ever. This especially applies to family, parenting or relationship professionals who want to create their own content and are referencing various programs and resources to create their own. The Universal Blueprint® system, every part of it, as well as how each part and the whole are described are protected not only by copyright laws, but because this system is the foundation and key component of RTITI’s Unique Service Position and branding, such violations and unauthorized are also considered trademark violations. Such misuse can dilute our company brand and create a market competitor offering an inferior counterfeit that would create confusion among the consumers trying to evaluate the quality of their choices.
If you want to use, teach, or create new content from the Universal Blueprint®, you need to be a certified Relationship Toolshop® leader (advisor/coach, group facilitator/trainer, content contributor/expert/co-author/division leader). Prior to certification, applicants must sign our non-disclosure agreement, because leader certification provides limited and expanded access or use to our copyrighted materials. This separate agreement makes clear that these additional privileges end when the person’s certification ends or goes inactive and their rights revert to that of any other website visitor. We protect our copyrights and will prosecute anyone who violates them, since we have published our policies publicly, such as in these website policies and additional agreements provided at specific points in our service relationship with a person.
